MUMBAI: DHX Media, a global children’s content and brands company, has struck ten new distribution deals for the third season of hit family series ‘The Deep’ bringing the total number of broadcasters and streaming platforms for the CGI-animated underwater adventure series up to 40 globally.
The news follows a 2018 BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) nomination for best International Animation for season two of The Deep, co-produced by DHX Media and A Stark Production.
New deals for season three of The Deep, which was commissioned by ABC Australia earlier this year, have been struck by DHX Media with CBBC (UK), Super RTL (Germany), VRT (Belgium), NRK (Norway), KidsZone(Baltics), S4C (UK and Wales), SVT (Sweden), and TVP (Poland), in addition to previously announced deals with Netflix (worldwide) and Family CHRGD (Canada).
DHX Media has also signed two new distribution deals for seasons one and two of The Deep, with France Televisions (France) and RTP (Portugal). Seasons one and two of The Deep air in 190 countries.
“From the moment it premiered, The Deep has resonated with kids and families for its wonderful animation and strong storytelling. The series continues to generate strong sales into markets around the world, and the talented creative team behind The Deep have done an amazing job on season three, delivering a great new set of adventures for broadcasters and streaming platforms to share with audiences,” said DHX Media VP Distribution Jerry Diaz.
The Deep Season 3 follows the adventures of the Nekton family—a brilliant team of underwater explorers. With state-of-the-art technology and an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Nektons explore the mysterious depths of the ocean, where most of our world lies unexplored and unexplained.
In season three, the Nektons are back and the Monumentials—huge creatures capable of changing the world—are waking from their long slumber! To put the giants back to sleep, Ant, Fontaine, Will and Kaiko must find the ancient city of Lemuria and harness its secret. Dangerous pirates, fantastic creatures and tantalising mysteries will confront them along the way. But even with unexpected help from Jeffrey the Fish, they’re running out of time.
